I still have a fondness of this Christmas so I’m glad I made time(ish) to make them this year. It’s interesting having just posted the 2013 version to spot the differences. I’d say as the bake looks fuller in the cupcake case the elements look a little more in proportion. Having said that, there wasn’t…… Continue reading Reindeer Cupcakes (2016)
The festive season called for festive cupcakes. I bought the gingerbread figure decorations at the Cake and Bake Show in November so they had to be part of my work Christmas buffet.
